I can't think of a heading

Last night, I lay awake for some time, thanks to being sick. I came across the thought of how I can make a post more interesting by its intro only. How a about a poorly written, shamelessly short poem?

Tribal - surely anything but idle.
Army - not the kind that you’d see on Barbie.
Faux leather - handy for every season, any weather.
High waisted short… yeah I got nothin’

So anyways, are you in need of a pre or mid-autumn look? I got the amazing opportunity to shoot with stunning garments from the one (and only) The Lot; a contemporary fashion retailer, with the taste for anything daring, trendy and fierce.

I paired a tribal print jersey with a high waisted black short, some black army boots, a cool and casual rounded sunnie, a cute leather bag and a striking thunder ring. (When I reread this sentence I literally feel out of breath) I find autumn and spring difficult, as I never, ever know what to wear during those seasons. It’s both hot and cold, and a quick wardrobe change would not provide a happy camper.

A sweater can definitely be too hot for summer, which makes it a good choice for a season like autumn or spring. An army boot is always fun to play around with. I find it quite versatile. Accessorizing has always been fun, and it, obviously, adds that little extra something.

I have another outfit or two on its way, stocked by none other than The Lot. Their charming little store in Stellenbosch was too kind by helping. My model and I only had under an hour to shoot, so we took the streets and BAM! we photographed, not caring what the gawking pedestrians thought.

All in all, I think this outfit is a winner. I’ll probably be back at the store. They received new stock (winning) and it’s something I’d urge all you fashionable kids to check out.

Before I end this post, The Lot has a website from where you can buy online - http://ilovethelot.com/ yep. It’s that cool.
